We are working on some mobile coffee bar and pretzel units from converted shipping containers. The pop-up units are planned to be located at Events and Retail Park locations.
Our latest retail design work for established client Auntie Anne’s has opened in Touchwood Shopping Centre, Solihull earlier this month.
The compact kiosk is packed with internal services, data & electrics. Internal layout & circulation areas have been carefully designed to ensure efficient use of space and functionality.
Concealed LED lighting strips give a warm wash of light over the distressed oak cladding finishes and highlight the internal working area.
We assisted St Oswald’s Hospice in the transformation of a double decker bus, donated by Go North East into a charity shop on wheels. The bus was affectionately named ‘Ozzie’ in a public poll.
The vehicle, which was gifted by the region’s biggest bus company to Gosforth-based St Oswald’s, has been given an overhaul to install a heating system and kitchen, so it can be used as a mobile store, workshop and venue. Available to local businesses for private hire, the multi-functional space is also designed to host meetings or corporate events.
With plans to visit fairs, festivals and public events across the region, Ozzie Bus will act as new tool to help the hospice raise over £7.5 million every year – the sum it desperately needs to provide specialist care for patients with life-limiting conditions.
We are working alongside Intu to design a mini city styled kids play area within the mall of the MetroCentre, Gateshead.
The space will include soft play, a sensory garden and learning zones. A mini streetscape will be formed within the existing crescent shaped retail block to create a small scale high street, complete with child friendly Supermarket, Workshops and Hairdressers.
We recently worked alongside Ramsden’s and Aptus Shopfitting to provide the design for their new concept jewellery store, located in the INTU shopping centre at Braehead, Glasgow.
The new concept edges towards a higher profile design and moves away from Ramsden’s more traditional look. Part of our involvement in the project included obtaining Building Warrant Consents, RD01 and RD02 Landlord approvals.

Our HQ has had a bit of a revamp for 2018!
Existing cellular offices have been stripped out to give an open plan office space. We have used a fairly minimal palette, with birch plywood cladding to the stairwell and neutral grey carpet tiles (provided by Desso) with the odd punch of vibrant colour squares. Pendant downlights were sourced from Dowsing & Reynolds.
